Hewitt: You've got to respect the point

Elliott Hewitt believes his side possibly 'deserved more' from this afternoon's draw at Stevenage.

The Welshman equalised for the Magpies in the second half after Danny Newton had opened the scoring for the hosts.

And, while he accepts Notts were below-par in the first half, Hewitt believes it wouldn't have been an injustice had his side emerged victorious.

"The first half wasn't good enough today," he admitted. "But in the second half I thought we dominated throughout.

"Maybe we deserved more, but you've got to respect the point away. It's a tough place to come, as we found out last year when we lost 3-0.

"Maybe last season we would have lost that game, starting the way we did, but all the lads stuck together.

"We've got a really good group here and got the draw."

Hewitt, who will miss next week's match against Cheltenham Town after picking up his fifth booking of the season today, has found himself in and out of the starting 11 this campaign.

And the versatile 23-year-old is keen to identify his preferred position in a bid to secure a regular starting berth.

"I need to nail down one position if I'm going to kick on," he said. "It's something I think the gaffer wants me to do as well.

"I think versatility can also be a weakness. I don't want to sit on the bench – I want to be playing week in, week out."
